I don’t usually do poetry direct to camera, but here is a little vid I did for Spoke N Slurred, an iconic Adelaide spoken word event that has gone on-line during the COVID-19 shut-downs of the bars where we usually perform. It was recorded in my studio / work room in one take and all the post-processing was done in one day.
I was very excited to attend the 8th International Video Poetry Festival in Athens in December 2019. On the first night, I did a live spoken word performance with my video floodtide; my video future perfect was screened; and another video Game Over – Grand Final Edition was shown as part of a collection curated by Marie Craven. On the second day, I took part in an extended symposium / workshop on how we make video poems, and then performed some of my own poems as part of the multi-media concert that night. The whole Festival was an amazing and inspirational experience!

During our recent visit to Sweden, I did an impromptu recording session of poetry with musician / artist Frédéric Iriarte [UNIC6 Electroacoustic Universal Art Music]. Frédéric then composed and played backing tracks for the poems. This is a very different approach compared to my usual style. There also are some interesting conversations in the mix…
UPDATE! After two sell-out shows and 5 star reviews, Alison Paradoxx presents Floral Peroxide at The Libertine by Louis will have an encore performance on 17th March. Click here for more info and bookings.
